REMINDER: Annual SFS Taxonomy Fair - Wednesday, May 23, 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm (Exhibit Hall during Poster Session)
Taxonomic experts will be gathered during the poster session Wednesday afternoon to discuss any and all taxonomic issues and help with identifications. We have confirmed experts for Oligochaeta, Trichoptera, Algae, Chironomidae, Ephemeroptera, Hirudinea, Odonata, Coleoptera, and Unionidae. This year there will be prizes for those attendees that bring the 'most interesting specimens' to the Taxonomy Fair.
Are you flying to SFS? Please be aware that the FAA has recently changed their guidelines for flying with biological specimens, a description of how to package specimens can be found here: https://www.faa.gov/about/initiatives/hazmat_safety/.
Do you not have any specimens to examine but have questions about taxonomy or systematics? Be sure to stop by and chat with the invited experts and hear the latest news about the taxonomy of your favorite invertebrate or algal taxon. We look forward to seeing you at this year's fair.
